IGO Adventures puts on a number of staged multi-sport adventure races over weekends around the UK and some longer events abroad. Founded by trans-Atlantic rower Bobby Melville and adventurer George Bullard, the races have camaraderie and a digital detox at their core and, with a ‘compete or complete’ ethos, they are suitable for all levels of competitors. IGO's inaugural race, N60, was held in Norway in February 2016 with combinations of skiing, mountain-biking and running, and has taken place each year since then. Their other major race is IGO W114, which is held each September in Montana over four days (run-swim-run, mountain-biking, kayaking, mountain run).
